January used to be a slow month for new releases, but over the past few years, publishers and developers have taken advantage of this quiet gap in the gaming calendar to drop some pretty big games. This year is no different, and while the upcoming month isn’t full of new releases, there are plenty of high-profile games dropping on PC and console.
The month’s biggest releases are a triple threat of genres and ideas coming to your spare time. Square Enix’s Forspoken looks like a cool action-RPG where you wield magical powers at high speed. The Dead Space remake is always a reminder of Necromorphs cutting off limbs. And Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Engage is shaping up to be a leaner, more subdued chapter in the long-running tactical-RPG franchise.
Anime fans also have a lot to look forward to, as a brand new One Piece adventure and the release of two Persona ports will keep them busy for dozens of hours. The Persona games that have been released, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden, have some great additions to bring it up to modern standards, while One Piece Odyssey looks like a dynamic RPG in which you use rubber bullets, swords, and more. Can unleash kicks, and flaming kicks.
For everyone to play or looking for something silly to share with your family, THQ Nordic’s SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake might be just what you’re looking for. It’s silly and colorful SpongeBob fun, plus with an original voice cast, it’ll be an authentic trip to Bikini Bottom. For the rest of the month, you can check out the list below and highlights of what January has in store for you.
